10% off ???

Apr 3, 2005
This month (April) is my very first month selling. So far I have my 4 shows booked but I am worried about one of them cancelling out on me. I am thinking about setting up a catalog show under my name for any outside sales I can get. I was reading about a promotion of "10% off your first order of $50 or more with this flyer". My question is how do you give them the 10% off? Are you having to eat that money and is it worth it? or is there something else that can be done to be able to offer that? maybe putting those orders in a past host name or something? Very new and trying to learn and of course make some money. Any help or any other suggestions would be appreciated.

Remember Michelle, you will be making a minimum of 20% commission off of the order. If their order is $50, enter a payment of $5.00 (10%) as a consultant gift. You are still making 10% commission off of that order. And most importantly, you are building report between your customer, getting them excited about Pampered Chef products, and ultimately reminding them how they could have up to 30% off by hosting a show and 10% off all year. Many times, I offer to pay shipping on orders over $50. It works, because they're getting the "purchase $50 get product free" from Pampered Chef, and saving the $3.25 from me. I love getting those $50+ orders because I know they'll quickly increase my commission to the 22%+ level (usually more)

I have a question. I like the idea of giving free shipping on an order of $50 or more. How do you take the shipping off their order when imputing it onto pampered partner? I think I really need a help class for the software. :confused:

You don't "take" the shipping off exactly. What I do is just leave it in but make sure I have that amount in my account to cover their shipping and when posting payment info I "add" a payment under cash for the amount of shipping. It then balances and that amount is coming directly from me.

Another option when submitting payment info is to use the "Consultant Gift" option under the payment selections. This allows the guest to remember the gift from you, as well as have a record of your payment in your PPartner software for Tax Purposes!
